Visibility/Location: there were very clear signs to find this event, the parking was just across the street and there was ample parking. the area was decorated very well.

Wait Entertainment: the wait entertainment was awesome. every time we turned around in line there seemed to be a different creature breathing down our necks. there was a ghoul that was breathing fire while giving the rules. the audio outside was great and people were even being chased down the street screaming. the wait wasn't bad at all because there was something going on all around us.

Length of Event: not sure of the length, i was just looking for the end

Actor Performance: excellent, very startling

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: we were broken into groups of 5 or 6 and we were ushered through by a guide untill we reached the maze, we did not run into anyone else group wise and we were able to stop and look at all of the 3-D stuff for a good period of time.

Appropriate Ages: yes

Props / Special FX: excellent, 3-D was awesome, elevator was scary and the car almost running us over almost caused me to swear. everything flowed well and we screamed continuously

Costumes / Make-up: very well done, realistic and very scary..

Summary: we went in a group of five friends, 3 adults and 2 teenagers. I personally was scared to death. The whole experience from the time we pulled into the parking lot untill we ran out of the door was great. there were kids and adults of all ages and we really had a great time. we will return next year. my favorite was the bridge with the spinning tube around it, with our 3-D glasses on we were almost sideways trying to walk, it was really cool. This is definately a must see for anyone in the area.
